Hey Ashes...I didn't want you to watch that video. After being sleepless for three days it be a bit much.

Really, the issue at hand (Jer v Page) can be distilled to the flamboyance factor. Zep was a flamboyant band from the costumes (see Pages dragon pants) to the music style. I think they sought a shock factor and what could be confused for talent and musical ability could be showboating. Never did see them live.

ned the head: twice in one day! Hey, I read a cool thing about Zep while tripping through the tulips of that exhibition. stated that when they were "Big Time," they would shun all television appearances, etc. 'cuz they wanted to be close to the audience and have the audience feel the experience of the performance. That says a lot about them if it really is true... I cannot recall the source at this time.
